The international partners Global Action Plan UK were struck by how the school, had despite having no computers or access to the internet, made every effort to make time and use the local WESSA office to upload their stories and their results. Jabu Ndlovu, one of the teachers commented ‘ it is amazing how much we have learned apart from the importance of conserving water, I have learned to use a computer ! I was so excited when I uploaded my first story, it was like magic,’ she exclaimed with a chuckle. See their wonderful water saving stories here http://www.waterexplorer.org/south-africa

As part of the honour they won a canon camera to document their water explorer activities going forward.
